Mine Till Midnight

Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas is the first book in her Hathaway series. From the back cover.~

THEIR LIVES DEFY CONVENTION.

When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

THEIR DESIRE CONSUMES THEM BOTH…

Wealthy beyond most men’s dreams, Cam has tired of society’s petty restrictions and longs to return to his “uncivilized” Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship-but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into the most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter…

Mine Till Midnight was another fun and very sexy read by Lisa Kleypas. I love the entire Hathaway family, with all of their craziness. Amelia has become the head of the family, every since her brother Leo lost the woman he loved to scarlet fever. The Hathaway family tends to have only one type of luck, bad luck. Cam Rohan is a gypsy who has the Midas touch. No matter how much he tries to lose all of his money, he turns everything to gold. From the moment Cam and Amelia first see each other, there is an instant attraction that they both try to fight. When Cam and Amelia finally give in to their attraction, the passion leaps off the pages. Amelia finally has someone to lean on with Cam, and he has someone who needs him and his money for the first time in his life.

I thoroughly enjoyed Mine Till Midnight. The Hathaways are such a fun family and we even get a taste of some of the Wallflowers in this book. The next book in the Hathaway series is Seduce Me at Sunrise, which I am currently reading. I feel like I should send out a thank you note to Carolyn at http://thethrillionthpage.blogspot.com/ for suggesting Lisa Kleypas to me the first time. It was her raving about The Devil in Winter that had me trying my first Kleypas book.

I love this series - I have yet to read the latest, Tempt me at Twilight - but I loved Cam. Merripen and Win though - sigh. So sweet!

I loved Merripen & Win in the first book and loved getting to read their entire story. I have Tempt me at Twilight in my monster TBR pile.
